Deion Sanders is building something special in Boulder. The Colorado football spring game was held on Saturday in a snowy atmosphere, but that didn’t matter as the fans packed the stadium and wanted to catch a glimpse of the new-look Buffaloes.
They did not disappoint.
Colorado looked like a much different team than the one we saw in 2022 when it finished 1-11 and fans are optimistic for the first time in a few years.
What did we learn from the Buffaloes’ spring game?
3. The excitement is back
Watching the spring game with the ESPN crew on the field in Boulder was something else. It just had a different feel to it. The program that was stale for the past couple of years under Karl Dorrell was able to muster up some excitement and new life with the hiring of Deion Sanders.
Don’t believe me? Just check out what the attendance looked like last season for the spring game compared to this year. Unreal.
Sanders has brought the energy and he raved about the turnaround and said that the fans shocked him with the turnout. With that kind of backing from the fanbase, there’s no reason why Sanders can’t succeed in Boulder.
As long as he can rebuild this program from the ground up, fans are going to believe and keep showing up in droves.
What the nation saw from Colorado on Saturday opened some eyes.
